Excellent Hearing and A Poison Oak Bush

This young fellow knew exactly where what he wanted was — right in the middle of a poison oak bush!!  He leapt in and forcefully pushed branches aside with his neck and forepaws, thrusting his nose to the exact right spot on the ground which he obviously could not see. Immediately the coyote came up with a vole. He munched it down right then and there rather than back out of the bush. Notice that he’s keeping an eye on a bird flying overhead — coyotes tend to keep an eye on everything that is happening around themselves. The vole was found totally by sound, without any visual help at all.
